He left me deformed. I gave Dr Naficy all my trust and money, and he hacked away at my face until I was unrecognizable. He is cruel, vicious, and sadistic.

I had an otoplasty with Dr Naficy a few months ago and unfortunately will get a revision elsewhere. Before surgery the tops of my ears stuck out and they were asymmetrical. After surgery I have a telephone deformity and continued asymmetry, one ear aches when I wear glasses and I have a protruding stitch behind one ear. It is a hard lump. Dr Naficy said it was a great improvement but for me it is not. I'm told the stitches are too close to the surface and need to be redone.

I came in with some issues of aging, and walked out with multiple cosmetic and functional issues. At this point I was abandoned and left to deal with the damage on my own. I have since sought out another doctor who is far more capable to help restore my beauty. I truly regret ever laying a foot in this office.

I had a revision rhinoplasty with Dr Naficy for a pollybeak deformity. My pollybeak was improved but he caused a host of issues. My nose is very asymmetric and crooked. The dorsal graft he placed on my bridge is off to the left and is visible. I have visible grafts in my tip as well. My tip is over-rotated which doesn't look good on me as I am a 6 foot tall male. He didn't have the decency to tell me he didn't have the skill to perform my revision surgery nor fix his mistakes.

Last year I made a rash decision to have surgery with Dr Naficy for what I believed to be a straight forward rhinoplasty. The result of my surgery is embarrassing. It is twice as wide as used to be, and is very overstortened. It's as though the tip begins between my eyes and tapers out into a wide triangle shape. It was swollen and fluctuating for about a year, due to all of the unnecessary work he did inside my nose. I now need an extensive revision using rib grafts. BEWARE!!!

Dr. Naficy is a gifted surgeon who is dedicated to providing a youthful but natural look to the face. Additionally, everyone who works for him is professional, knowledgeable, polite, and friendly. It is a very client-oriented medical practice. I particularly like the fact that Dr. Naficy does only faces - and he is truly a facial genius. I have had a number of procedures with Dr. Naficy & I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Best Rhinoplasty Ever!! This was the best decision I ever made. I have been going back and forth on my decision to have a rhinoplasty for years and I am so glad to have done it with dr naficy. The results are unbelievable and the whole process was smooth from start to finish. My nose looks exactly how I always wanted. Can't recommend him enough!!!!
in Bellevue, WA |
Amazing surgical hands. I was extremely impressed with his credentials and reviews. I believe I received the best care the minute I walked through the doors during my first visit through my last appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Naficy and his staff in Bellevue. I was very diligent in my search for a skilled Dr. with high credentials and reviews and he by far met all my expectations.

I landed on Sam Naficy and after visiting the clinic I knew I made the right choice. From the beginning they listened to all my concerns. They being the nurses and the surgeon himself. Everyone was so kind and you never felt like you were a business transaction but perhaps a very close relative. I'm not exaggerating, they make you feel so welcome and respected. Which was a huge load off my mind because I'm normally anxious. Today marks close to 7 months post op and my nose looks fantastic!!!!!!

Got rhinoplasty and septo pasty with Dr Naficy. Cosmetic results have been very transformative! Recovery wasn't too bad. After about the first week I was in a state that I could start working a few hours a day, and after 2 weeks I was back at work. I breathing has also improved quite a bit. Although its not perfectly solved, but is still much better than before. Kudos to Dr Naficy and his staff! Highly recommend if you can afford it.
in Bellevue, WA |
The office staff and doctor were absolutely amazing. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked in. They made my surgery day easy and kept my mom entertained while she waited. They provided all of the supplies and easy to follow instructions for post op care. I recommend using Dr. Naficy for procedures you are considering. My results are stunning!!!!
in Seattle, WA |
I do not recommend Dr Naficy for rhinoplasty. I hate the result, it's upturned like a PIG. We did imaging and it doesn't look ANYTHING like that. I uploaded a photo to yelp. It was embarrassing speaking to family and friends who cringed and said How much did you spend for THAT..? 12k... That's how much. So embarrassed. He rushes through the consult and surgery. Surgically he is ok but beware the ugly results. I uploaded a photo to yelp.

Dr Naficy is a revision rhinoplasty genius! He restored my breathing after my nose was destroyed by another surgeon. He and his staff are professional, compassionate and work hard to make sure your experience is a good one. Highly recommend.
in Bellevue, WA |
I had a very difficult revision rhinoplasty problem and was turned away by a few other surgeons due to complexities in my nose. Dr. Naficy did my revision surgery and used a rib to rebuild my nose. Although the result is still not a 100% my ideal nose it is a huge improvement over my old nose. I would recommend Naficy for revision rhinoplasty.
